Expectations Surpassed - this is a fun flick
20 November 2015 | by evan5634See all my reviews

Unfortunately, science fiction films lack appeal and prestige at festivals. So, I have no doubt that Recoil will get lost in the festival world that does not cater to entertainment pieces like this. That being said... Recoil was great fun to watch. After a few minutes of setup, I found myself lost in the story and the fun of what science fiction used to be. After hearing the director speak at the Palm Springs International Short Film Festival, we see his nostalgic influences come to life in this redemptive space adventure that was designed to entertain on the silver screen. I must admit, after watching a second time on my laptop, it doesn't compare to the big picture impact from the theater. Recoil inspired me enough to write a review. It has my vote.
